Another page from James Kerr's diary -- mentioning Deaf Smith.

The Diary of James Kerr, from the
Texas State Archives
On a trip to the Texas State Archives, in Austin, I happened to stumble across James Kerr's diary.  This is his handwriting.  I chose to photograph this page because of its mention of Deaf Smith.
This diary and several other personal items of Major James Kerr were stored in a little envelope at the State Archives building next to the Capitol.  The fingers are mine.
